I know many experienced makeup artists and hairstylists in NYC. 
I understand you are on a budget but $100 is as low as they will go for each service. If you’re interested, let me know and we can talk.

When you say $100 per service, are you referring to $200 per bridesmaid ($100 for hair and $100 for makeup) or do you mean $100 total per bridesmaid?

I used Sachiko Yanase, who is awesome, and in high demand.  Her 2007 prices were $500 for:

hair and makeup for bride (actual date plus trial) AND

hair and makeup for 2 girls

any service after that is $70 additional. 

You can contact her at [email protected]

She’s based out of Astoria, Queens and will travel anywhere within 1 hour from there without charge.

I think Sachiko charges additional for the trial (which is what she quoted me in late October). I believe she may be in Japan right now? She goes back fairly often. Otherwise, she’s really responsive to phone inquiries as well.

If you contact Beauty On Call (they are located in Chicago) they actually contract out to freelancers all over the country.  So you can work through them to find you hair and make up people in NY.  I am using htem now and have scheduled my trials for Feb.  They’re prices were pretty resonable. 

 There are three levels of stylist you can get.  National, Senior, Regional.  Regional being the cheapest (the one I am using).  I think it’s $175 for each service for the bride (the price includes the trial tho!) and $75 for each service for the bridesmaids.

 So far my communications with them have been great!  Here’s the website – http://www.beautyoncall.com

 Also if it’s convieinent try going down to Chinatown to some of the salons there.  I bet they can do it for you pretty cheap if you can get your wedding party down there before the wedding!

A question about Sachiko does she do all the hair and make up for the entire bridal party?  Doesn’t that take forever?  After reading the other posts she sounds like a fantastic deal!  Except I have seven bridesmaids, myself and two mothers to get done!  If it was only one person wouldn’t it take hours??

She can do your entire wedding party if you ask, but you are right, it would take a long time.

 She recommends Stacey Pitt to do hair and she can do make up to speed things along. They team up sometimes for larger weddings.

ghkim9: have you tried Ai Sakai? she often works with sachiko and her rates are comparable. i’m using stacy pitt for hair and she is super reasonably priced for the quality of the work.

Sachiko and Ai are usually mentioned along with Reiko Utsugi. They all work together sometimes on larger weddings.

I’m not sure of Ai or Reiko’s contact information. But maybe you can google for it.
